Derek Lewis Ltd is a Road Surfacing and Civil Engineering company with more than four decades of experience in the field.
Founded in 1973 under the name ‘Derek Lewis Plant Hire’ the business quickly established itself as a regular supplier of operated plant to various local authorities, including Doncaster Metropolitan Borough Council and many private sector clients.
As clients’ requirements changed over the years, so too did the focus of the company, moving on from plant hire, to offering the full construction package including the supply and laying of bituminous materials.
In 2009, the company underwent the biggest change in its 36 year history when Darren Rhodes and Tom Lewis purchased the majority shareholding from Derek Lewis himself.
The impact of the buyout was immediate. The company was rebranded as simply Derek Lewis Ltd, reflecting the multifaceted organisation it had become. Civil Engineering was given greater emphasis than ever before, complementing the well-established surfacing works and benefitting hugely from further investment and recruitment of the best available talent.
The company’s vast experience in these fields would be utilised to even greater effect, creating a business capable of providing a safe and high quality service that consistently meets its clients’ requirements and specifications.
Now an established brand, Derek Lewis Ltd retains its firm belief in continued re-investment, controlled growth, and adoption of new management systems for improved efficiency. The latest technological advances in the field are constantly monitored for any innovations that can improve the services offered.
Derek Lewis Ltd maintains a vested interest in the construction sector, ensuring it is ready to adapt to any changes that may occur, continuing its expansion and influence in the process. Its policy remains the same – ‘right first time – every time.’
